The Final Heisman Odds Project Derrick Henry Win
If oddsmakers are correct, Alabama's Derrick Henry will claim the school's second Heisman Trophy this Saturday night.
The 2015 finalists were announced on Monday and Henry will be joined by Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson and Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey. All three players have racked up outstanding numbers and led their respective teams offensively, but Henry's season is one of the greatest all-time in the SEC.
That's one of the reasons why Henry is out in front for the Heisman. According to Sportsbook, the Crimson Tide running back is a 1-15 favorite to win the award in New York this weekend. That means you'd have to risk $1,500 just to win $100. McCaffrey is 5-1 and Watson is 26-1.
The junior rushed for an conference single-season record 1,986 yards and 23 touchdowns in 2015. That included four games of 200 yards or more, which also tied a conference record. Henry has carried the Alabama offense down the stretch with 90 carries in the final two games.
Fans will find out if Henry becomes Alabama's second Heisman Trophy winner when the the ceremony is held at 8 PM/CT on ESPN this Saturday.
